Digital photography is one of the most dynamic mediums within the creative industries; it has become one of the dominant forces in shaping and defining contemporary society. Demand for the visual is at an optimum and never before has so much power been given to the still or moving digital image within our culture. Our unique undergraduate course focuses specifically on the use of digital technologies within the photographic industry.
Why Study Digital Photography with us?
Our course is designed for you to use practical skills, knowledge and critical application of digital photography in direct correlation with how the image (still and moving) is currently being created, shared, distributed, and sold, be it in a regional, national or international visual economy. We aim to provide you with the ability to enter this economy, and to act as a site of critical debate around the issues that this continually evolving visual market raises.
You will develop critical visual and photographic commercial skills and knowledge to support your entry into employment and/or further higher level study or research.
